Hi all, I did a full reinstall of mandrake and now my NVIDIA drivers won't install. I exit X (init 3) and log in as root then type sh nvidapackage.run, it comes up with the gui, i accept terms, then it comes back with the error, it states the following:
"ERROR: Unable to link kernel module."
..so I went to the nvidia-installer log file and it states the following:
"nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'

on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
...where it says no space left on device, i left 3.4 gigs to /usr so that can't be the issue, like i said these drivers (6106 package) was working before but i reinstalled mandrake so i could create multiple partitions (hear is a good thing to do when reinstalling linux OS) with /boot, /, /usr, /var, /swap/, /tmp, /home and so forth. If anyone knows whats happening here, please let me know what to do, thanks!!!
